b2ap3_thumbnail_14212907_S.jpgIn this day and age, “out with the old and in with the new” is all too common. And while that may work and be true for many things, when it comes to hardwood floors, we believe in cherishing them and making the best of what you have. Unfortunately, we know that once in a while, you might have to totally replace a hardwood floor.

b2ap3_thumbnail_18432783_S.jpg Contrary to popular belief, it is the floor that makes a kitchen. Think about it: what’s the first thing you notice when you see a beautiful kitchen in a design magazine? The astounding color of that kitchen, of course, starting first with the floor layout. A floor is the foundation of the kitchen’s aesthetic, giving life to the room, or, if not done well, taking it away. And, to make sure the latter doesn’t happen, your best bet is hardwood.

This is an all too common problem with parents, especially new parents. As a mother-to-be, (coming summer 2015!) I can only imagine what my floors will look like after the new bundle of joy is here! I have a hard enough time keeping them clean with a large black dog, a small white cat (yeah, who came up with the plan to have a pet of each color?), and a husband who loves playing/working in the yard more than an 8 year old. If you’re like me, keeping your floors clean and scratch free is a full time job all on its own! The key to this problem, I’ve found, is starting with the right floor for the life you lead. If your life is calmer and you don’t have to worry about much maintenance, not only are you one of the lucky ones but you can afford a more expensive and softer floor if you chose. If, however, your life is as hectic and dirty as mine, you’re going to need some serious durability and a small price tag to boot. Here are a few tips to help you with your flooring decisions.

b2ap3_thumbnail_snippy.PNGPeople can be surprisingly opinionated about which type of flooring they prefer. Some crave the comfort of a plush carpet, while others prefer the look of a shiny hardwood floor. As with many other things, folks seem to be sure of what they like to walk on.

During the winter, even the most carefully installed wood floors tend to dry out and shrink. The floor behaves that way because of wood's relationship with moisture in the air. Air with a low moisture content, or low relative humidity (RH), causes wood to lose moisture. When wood loses moisture, it shrinks.  To control winter-related shrinkage of flooring and the gaps there are basically six options.

You don’t tend to think about your home’s flooring unless something goes wrong. Have you ever had a pet leave their business on the carpet, and even after using some sort of cleaner, that stain still bugged you? Or, perhaps, with a carpet, it faded in parts where the sun hit it daily, and/or got torn, worn or just plain outdated? It happens. Meanwhile, carpets tend to aggravate people’s allergies because they’re dust collectors.

During the winter on Cape Cod we can get a lot of rain, sleet, and snow so we usually use salt to keep it all from freezing. Salt crystals can act like sandpaper to a floor, dulling a floor's surface or damaging a finish. And once the surface is damaged, the underlying materials can be damaged or stained by water and other foreign matter that soaks in. First line of defense: Immediately remove water droplets that may contain salt. For that, I keep a Swiffer-type mop handy, outfitted with rectangles of old terry-cloth towel, which I can wash and reuse. To pick up salt that's dried onto floors without scratching the finish, you'll first need to spray the floor with warm water, or water mixed with a splash of vinegar. Let the liquid sit for a minute or two, and wipe it up with a dry towel on your mop.

Here are a few tips and tricks to keeping your floors happy during the harsh New England winters!

What Kind of Hardwood Flooring is the Most Durable?

We all want floors in our home that look great, but sometimes there are other factors which are just as important. If you have a busy home with pets, kids and guests then you need a floor that can stand up to the invasion of shoes and dirt. If you are preparing a property for rental you want a floor that you can install and forget about. And if you are on a budget you’ll want to know that your investment is going to last. Wood products are known for their natural beauty, but when selecting a type of wood for your next flooring project, it is important to also consider the level of durability by understanding the difference between wood types. Each type and species of wood has an individual structure that creates unique physical properties that determine how suitable they are for different projects.

The Best Flooring For Your Summer Home

Now that we’re entering the winter months, it’s inevitable that many of you will be closing up your summer homes at one point or another. Here on Cape Cod, that likely means a beachfront property. We’re experienced in all kinds of different residential and commercial flooring projects, and we know that vacation homes tend to have unique needs that differ from those of your main residence.

Here are a few flooring options that are perfect for different summer homes, and contact Happy Floors for all of your flooring needs!

Acclimating Your New Flooring: Why it’s Essential to Wait

 

A word of caution, never let your contractors install your new floor as soon as the cartons arrive at your home. Any new floor, whether it’s hardwood, engineered wood, or laminate, needs to sit in your house for at least 48 hours in the room it will be installed in order to acclimate or to become accustomed to a new climate or conditions.

What do you think when you hear “Luxury”? Do you think of marble columns? Maybe golden toilets and owning your very own pet tiger? We all have a different idea of what luxury feels like, but one thing we can agree on is owning a tiger is probably out of our price range.

But what if you could afford some great luxurious upgrades for your home you may not have even thought of? Here’s one that usually is not on homeowners’ minds when renovating; heated floors. I mean, who wouldn’t want heated floors? If you have ever dreaded going into the bathroom on a winter's day solely on the basis of that cold tile floor, then you may have considered installing radiant floor heating in your house.
